Avoid School Suspension!
We are required by law to keep records of all immunizations of children in school. Annually, children in elementary and high schools in Chatham-Kent may face suspension from school if their immunizations are not up to date.
Report your child’s immunizations
Immunizations received at physicians or nurse practitioner’s offices are not automatically reported to the health unit. Parents are responsible to contact us to report immunizations every time their child gets a shot.
Immunizations can be reported by:
Phone: 519-355-1071 ext. 5900
In-Person: 177 King Street East, Suite 2, Chatham, ON
**If you choose not to have your child immunized against disease, you must provide a signed affidavit stating this to the Chatham-Kent Public Health Unit. These documents are required by Ontario Law.
